Yes,in matter of fact our whole family likes spicy food. These foods are good for digestive system too. Actually, hot pepper sauce on the side, is a good idea. Go for it. Thanks for stopping by and commenting,Randy M.

Your daughter likes spicy food? The crushed red pepper paste must make it very spicy. If so, bravo! I like spicy food and perhaps I will try it with an adaptation to help more delicate taste buds in my family. You can always add hot pepper sauce on the side.

Urmilashukla, It's great to be able to access such an authentic chili chicken recipe in the Indo-Chinese tradition. In particular, I like your use of cornstarch, dark soya sauce, and ginger for the texture of the first and the taste contributions of the two latter.

Respectfully, and with many thanks for sharing, Derdriu
